HIGHLIGHTS

The treasure hunt set up by Jane and Shari was a big success. Boris and Paul had a special one made up for them as well which was very funny! Sovereign Hill was good with the boys traveling down into the mines, having to keep their wheelchairs upon tracks that carried the gold. The shooting range was good. Carers supported campers from behind and on the trigger so that they could fire the guns. Boris and Sarah hit some bull’s-eyes. Food was pretty good and the weather was quite mild, although the fire above the ‘pit’ was warming. A trip to the winery proved that Nick couldn’t handle his alcohol, indulging in too much port tasting. The bus trip home for him was hard, but the bucket at the end of the road was sweet relief. The evening concert was a huge success, the highlight seeing David Watts playing the air guitar and singing.
